"Time to break out the champagne! Die Fledermaus is a rich, racy triumph!" Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star.
It looks like our new production of Die Fledermaus is a great hit with critics and audiences alike! But don't fret, there are still three performances of Strauss's satirical operetta left. The best dates for availability are October 30 and November 1. Pick a night and choose your own Adele! We still have one performance left with Ambur Braid on November 1, and Mireille Asselin performs October 30 and on our final performance on November 3. If that wasn't enough of an incentive, come frocked in your Fledermaus finery on October 30 while we host a costume meetup on Ring 3 during intermission. There are still many ways to join the party!

Die Fledermaus has not been seen by COC audiences since 1991, so we are very excited to bring a new production of Johann Strauss II’s intoxicating concoction to our stage. Although this is a piece chock full of madcap antics, mistaken identities and charming waltzes, it is also infused with dark humour and human foibles. Our creative and musical team explores all these aspects to offer a fresh perspective on Strauss’s popular operetta. COC Music Director Johannes Debus and director Christopher Alden take inspiration from each other.
